The service was excellent! We had appetizers, dinner and dessert and everything was delicious.
We love this restaurant and come back every time we are in Asheville!
Great meal and happening place! We had honey dusted fried chicken, crispy brussels, loaded potato cracklins, and the mountain harvest bowl. Everyone was bragging how good the food was! Will definitely return! We had a reservation and highly recommend doing so because even at 2 pm it was crowded with people waiting!
This breakfast way PHENOMENAL!
We will for sure be back to visit.
Katie, our server, was fantastic and so was John the manager! We were able to meet the Chef, Cary, and he was great as well! They made our visit amazing!
Best breakfast we’ve ever eaten. Katie made amazing recommendations. Service was friendly, timely, & accurate. We will definitely be back ASAP!
Took a little time to get our food but it was well worth it! Great staff and bar tenders. Beautiful dinning area with a great atmosphere
Fabulous dinner and wonderful service!
We sat at the bar, and Sara waited on us. We had sangrias that were delicious! The dusted honey fried chicken with macaroni and cheese and collards was finger licking good! And the pecan pie....don't even get me started! We left with an entire pie!
DeShawn was AMAZING, and made my grandmother's 75th birthday a hit! We had the best time. The atmosphere was great and so was the food!
Our server was great and food was served in a timely manner. Food was not very tasty, we had much better meals at other locations in Asheville. I would be willing to go back and try different items.
Presentation was very appealing! Food was the right temperature and the taste was excellent! The service was consistent and pleasant!
Great food, great service and great vibe! I will be back when in Asheville again.
Food seems to have declined since last time I was there. Surprised how crowded it was during Covid restrictions.
Excellent experience. Recommend.
Great food! Creative variations on traditional comfort food! We will return!
Always great food and service. We were able to be outside which is nice option. Every one wears masks and it feels very safe yet is still welcoming and comfortable.
We love the restaurant. Today's meal was not up to par but we'll be back.
Loved restaurant. However felt very uncomfortable with panhandlers in Downtown Asheville. There was even someone harassing us as we were checking out at the Wall Street garage. Not a good way to encourage visitors.
The avocado egg sandwich which amazing. The our server was also attentive and kind. Highly recommend!
Our server was great. He was very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. My chicken and avocado sandwich was really good. The fried pickles tasted fishy like they'd been fried in fish grease and the banana pudding didn't have bananas in it. Overall it was a mediocre experience.
Cauliflower taco was amazing!! Enjoyed the fried green tomatoes and the goat cheese girts!
We went there for brunch. Party of 6 and everyone of us enjoyed what they ordered.
Food was absolutely excellent! Very tasty, upscale versions of Southern classics. Cocktails were a light pour, but pretty tasty. Price point seemed on-par with those in the area, but a little expensive for the amount of food served. Certainly indicative of a "tourist town" hotspot. Overall, would certainly recommend and will go ahead if ever I am in Asheville.
Delicious food, kind staff, fun environment!!!!!!!
Food was excellent. Our server was great. My only issue was that I made a reservation for indoor dining. We arrived at our reservation time and we had to wait. Eventually they placed us in the outdoor covered dining area. That area wasn’t bad but it was a bit cold.
The place over delivered and I’ll be a returning customer.
Phenomenal food, phenomenal beverages, phenomenal service!!!
Very enjoyable experience!!......as always!!!!
Amazing food and great service! Will definitely be back!
Perfect brunch after a weekend exploring Asheville. The food was amazing and the service was excellent.
What a great place to go in a great city the food and the drinks are perfect for a great evening in Asheville
The food was OK, the server was nice and friendly, but they let a table of seven guys destroy the ambiance. They were loud and cursing and no one said a thing. If the food was good I could release it.
Our waitress was amazing; everything was delivered promptly and her recommendations for the biscuits. The meatloaf and catfish were full of flavor. The main issue that needs resolved is the waiting area which is not available on the inside. I understand that COVID has made things difficult. We checked in 10 mins early and the receptionist asked us to wait outside in the pouring rain. I asked if we could remain inside and we were asked again to stand outside. We waited the 10 mins for the text to arrive as our shoes and pants were soaked by this point. I did not let this ruin our evening. As another note, the extended rooms that were tented in were completely open with no thought to the receptionist to use.
Great place, fun energy, excellent food and service! Definitely recommend!
Original table on front patio; too cold for us; server and Mgr moved us inside near bar; food was awesome!
We order an appetizer and two entrees. The potato skins were amazing. We also had the boneless fried chicken. You get two large chicken breasts. Breading is great. I would get the gravy on the side as I like don’t want the breading to get soft. Good experience, and great service.
We enjoyed our Wednesday night dinner, our first at Tupelo. The food was as described, service attentive and professional, and price point was reasonable.
Fantastic dinner, cocktails and service. Went back for breakfast the next day! Definitely recommend!
The Tupelo Shrimp and Sweet and Spicy Chicken Sandwich were very good. Service was also quick.
Met for brunch to celebrate my daughter’s 22nd birthday with her college roommates, best friend, and cousin. The menu offered a variety of choices for all the girls. Our server was nice and attentive. Great time with good food, good service, and good friends.
